Two completely unforgettable meals were had here, as I wanted to try everything on the menu. I was blown away. I can't wait to return to Bologna and eat here. You won't believe how good it is. The atmosphere is fantastic, and the personal attention from the staff is outstanding. I will never forget this place or the two meals... More

Came here for lunch on a Sunday and had the last table in the inner part of the restaurant. No menu but the waiter told us what options there were. We had a small antipasta, followed by tagliatelli and beef in balsamico sauce. Excellent sangiovese wine. Skipped desert and had coffee instead. Though the place was completely full, service was...

This was my first visit and will certainly not be the last. From start to finish it could not be faulted. The service was friendly and efficient yet not hurried in any way. Prosecco and a little platter brought as an extra along with fresh ( not dry!) bread was a lovely start. Pasta starter was very tasty and the... More

This restaurant never fails to impress. The food is very good and the service exceptional. It is a little quirky, so if you are after the box stanard evening, indifferent service and standard food, this is not for you. Here the diner comes first. You are given a drink and nibbles the moment you sit down, and i mean the... More

We ate here on our first night in Bologna because we had read good reviews on TripAdvisor and in Lonely Planet. We arrived early and were shown to a small table for two in a nook at the back of the shop. The place is very cluttered with all sorts of things from its previous incarnation as a pharmacy. A...

We visited this restaurant for dinner one thursday night and an interesting experience it turned out to be! On arrival we were poured a glass of prosecco each which was most welcome! The wine list then appeared but no menus. Oh well we thought, they'll be here soon meantime we'll order some wine. The list has a good range of... More

Less like a restaurant, more like being invited to a dinner party with strangers. It's all very idiosyncratic. The decor is best described a Sophisticated-Cluttered. The menu is unwritten so you have to pay attention to the lovely friendly waitresses. You also have no idea what you will eventually pay and there's no obvious distinction between what's chargeable and what's... More

Saw this restaurant mentioned in a newspaper article before we went to Italy. searched it out one afternoon to check it out and book a meal for the evening. Decided to enjoy a little sample while we were there and that whet our appetite for the evening meal. Very quaint restaurant, very special staff, beautiful food, great house wine, great... More

We came here on the recommendation of the food critic AA Gill in The Times and he was completely right to rave about this amazing restaurant. Typically Italian service when we arrived we were given wine, which the owner opened and poured without asking and poured a glass for himself (we were not charged for the initial glass of wine)...
